The villa we booked came with a private pool, or so we thought. This is pretty misleading as it does not offer any privacy - all the apartments are situated very close to one another and you are completely overlooked. You can also hear neighbours conversations and vice versa. I also found the staff to be at times pushy and...

This is a small hotel that offers a relaxing stay with a beach front location, we book into the romantic villa with private pool, a beautiful villa in a quite corner surrounded by lush vegetation and perfect peace. The hotel itself is very relaxing, the staff and management are excellent the food good and the location perfect. I would recommend...

From the moment we arrived we were made to feel unwelcome and uncomfortable. Firstly the room we booked 4 months in advance was unavailable. Secondly, We were asked to pay up front with extra charges if paying by credit card! We were travelling in a group of 10 with six adults and four children. We were told from the get...

Our stay at Good Karma was awesome. The place is very quiet (almost no neighbours, so the beach is only used by the guests) and very few bungalows. The restaurant is on the beach, serving excellent food (the lobster is excellent and not expensive). The only flaw is that you need to order your diner at the end of the...

We booked to stay in a villa with a private pool. It so wasn't worth the overinflated price. No privacy whatsoever you are overlooked from a two storey building opposite and the neighbouring villas are situated more or less on top of each other. The photos are not realistic to the size of the properties or their subsequent 'private' pools....

It seems to us that this site should not be a place where people take revenge on each other, lie or engage in blackmail. Such an outright lie after several attempts of blackmail should not be published anywhere. This undermines the credibility of this site.

This hotel is set back from a beautiful sweeping beach, which is unspoilt by the nearby hotel developments. Access may be difficult for those with mobility problems, it is down a dirt track. Relaxing environment which well is designed and very green. We enjoyed it so much we stayed an extra two nights - helped by the manager who fitted...

We stayed for 4 nights and it was lovely. The owners are very friendly and helpful, we really enjoyed talking to them, the staff is hard-working and always eager to help, and the location is absolute tranquility. Don't miss out on the spa! I decided to get 5 hours of various treatments and everything was amazing. Top notch practitioner, it...

Stayed at the Good Karma for only one night, and it was amazing! The room is very spacious and well decorated. At the check in, we were greeted by the owner and the manager themselves, and they briefed us very nicely about all the hotel facilities. The location couldn't be better, right by the beach, which is great, beautiful and...

We stayed 2 nights. This hotel is ultimately for relaxation. The location automatically puts you into a holiday mood as it's directly on the beach. Rooms were comfortable, spacious, and clean. Water and tea making facilities provided. There are plenty of places to just chill out- pool day beds, beach lounges, beach chairs, hammocks, restaurant, lounges, balcony etc. Also a...

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Wonderful small hotel on the beach, built in February 2013. Only 5 bungalows with direct ocean views, well-kept area with tropical garden. Restaurant, swimming pool, ayurveda and yoga place. Spacious rooms with air conditioning, hot water and fine furnishings. The hotel is surrounded by a deserted beach on one side and fresh water lagoon - on the other. A paradise for lovers of flora and fauna. ... more   less
